Obituary

With profound sadness we announce the passing of Wilhelmina Dorado Ordenis Smith, our loving and devoted mother, grandmother, sister, auntie and friend to all whose lives she touched, on June 18, 2020 in Palm Springs, California. She was in her 80th year. She was born on September 4, 1939, in Carataya, Maayon, Capiz, Philippines, a daughter of the late Gregorio Ordenis and Genoveva Dorado Ordenis.

She married the late Richard Arthur Smith on October 15, 1965, in Makati, Philippines during his brave service in the US Navy during the Vietnam War. They were a devoted couple until his passing in 2004.

After immigrating to America, Wilhelmina received her degree from the University of Northern Colorado. She went on to establish her own bookkeeping and tax service in Palm Springs. In her later years, she worked tirelessly to fund a humanitarian project in the Philippines. Although her dream has not yet come to fruition, her daughter, Jeannette Meeks will carry on in her stead.

Serving as the matriarch of her family, Wilhelmina went above and beyond for those that she loved. She lived her life selflessly and was dedicated to ensuring that the opportunities she had in America were shared with her brothers and sisters whom she cherished dearly. Her purpose in life was to enrich the lives of her family, near and far, with love, understanding, and unwavering dedication. Her compassionate heart and forgiving nature will be forever missed.

Wilhelmina was predeceased by her father, Gregorio Ordenis; her mother, Genoveva Dorado Ordenis; her husband, Richard Arthur Smith; her sister, Werlyn Ordenis Belo; her brothers, Winston and Wilfredo Ordenis; her brother in-laws, Renato Descalzota and Patrick O'Daly; her neices, Juliet Ordenis and Myta Ordenis; and her newphews, Renato Descalzota and Antonio Belo Jr.
